Observer
NameRobert S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIn respect of the brightness I have estimated, please be aware that I observed this from inside my house. I have estimated the brightness as I saw it under the following conditions: I was in a Skype conference call at the time and was looking at a PC screen that is approximately 0.5m in front of the window. I have two desk lamps with daylight spectrum bulbs on my desk which were switched on at the time. The light outside the window was dusk & the object grabbed my attention despite the room lighting.
